PRINCES OF WALES: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed to North Wales on Friday to meet with organizations that support the mental well-being of young people.

The royals visited a facility supported by Mind, the mental health charity that fosters services for young children experiencing mental health issues. They also met with students who have used art as a tool to cope with difficulties.

The Duchess of Cambridge shopped her closet for the event: She wore a gray military style Reiss coat with Kiki McDonough earrings. She’d previously donned the coat in 2012 for the opening of the new Football Association facility. In 2011, she wore it for a Christmas Day walk at Sandringham, Queen Elizabeth’s country estate in Norfolk, England.

“The Duke and Duchess have repeatedly focused global attention on mental well-being in recent months, echoing Mind’s ongoing determination to end the stigma that surrounds mental health problems,” said Sara Moseley, the director of Mind in Wales. “For their dedication to our vital cause, we are incredibly grateful.”

Earlier this week, the Duchess made a rare public speech on the topic of mental health issues at a Place2Be Headteacher conference. She is a patron of the Place2Be charity.
